When I bought the house, the moon garden was a tangled mess of boxwoods, azaleas, and ivy. Last fall, it looked like this as I worked to tear out everything and start from scratch.
I took some photos of this area yesterday to record all the changes in every part of the yard. Most of the plants were moved from other parts of the yard, wintersown, or direct sown. A few cuttings and a few purchased six packs of annuals finished it off.
Scented and white flowering plants are mixed with purple/red/black foliage. At first I hated this area of the yard. It always felt "dead". Adding white plants really helped make it feel more alive. Can't wait for my castor beans to get some real growth on them. I've also planted a few cotton plants back here.
